george w. bush. but he lost florida by 537 votes as all of our viewers remember, and as a result, george w. bush had enough to win the more than 270 you need to be elected president of the united states and so you could have a situation that would develop in this particular case, maybe romney would win the popular vote but obama would win the electoral college. it wouldn't be the first time and that is certainly a possibility at this point. these national polls, when you add them all together and do an average of all the polls, i have learned over the years that they are pretty accurate among likely voters. but what matters is the battleground states, what the polls are there. and there's only one poll that really counts and that is the poll that takes place on tuesday. so we'll know soon enough. >> a national poll showing romney's national favorability at 53%, just shy of obama at 54%, there used to be a much greater gap there, are we saying that turn decideds are certainly playing a role in a big way here? >> yes, i think that usually, in most polling experts, most of the polit

respond to them basically can reinforce or under d undermine that narrative. in the case of george w. bush in 2006 with hurricane katrina, he campaigned as basically a compassionate conservative. but his actions during the whole katrina mess proved that he was otherwise. >> because you have that lasting image of president bush and when he said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of t
